She is a big part of my argument. She was awesome in the Pam Anderson and Flava Flav roasts, but nowadays it seems that CC has put a few lesser known comedians mixed in with a few other washed up celebrities.
The older roasts had Lampanelli, Giraldo, DePaulo, and Ross with a few celebrities who made some funny comments hear and there.
The Roseanne one had Ross, Shumer, and Jesselnick (spelling?). I am sorry but Ellen Barkin and Carrie Fischer were terrible. I think CC has also cut some of the jokes and bits out because Gilbert Gottfried was going down the line ripping on the dais, but for some reason skipped half of them.
I am not saying they are not funny, but they do not compare to the older ones that pushed the limits.
